Masindi woman MP Bintu Jalia Lukumu has run to court to challenge her opponent’s declaration by the electoral commission as the Buruli Member of Parliament.

Bintu through her lawyers of Victoria Advocates and Legal Consultants yesterday afternoon filed a petition challenging Akugizibwe Ronald Aled and Electoral Commission over the results of the just concluded Buruli parliamentary elections.

The petition submitted to Masindi high court states that Akugizibwe did not officially resign from public service before joining politics and was still on payroll.

They prayed to be availed with the information as regards when Akugizibwe resigned from employment plus proof of his resignation, and when he last received his salary to enable them advise their client accordingly.

The petition further states that Akugizibwe was not validly elected, thus they want the victory of Akugizibwe to be set aside, and Bintu to be declared the duly elected Member of Parliament for Buruli Constituency, and the costs to paid by the respondents.

Addressing journalists shortly after filing the petition, Robinson Wamani who works with Victoria Advocates and Legal Consultants said that by the time of nomination, Akugizibwe Ronald Aled the MP-elect for Buruli Constituency had not resigned from the public service, and this became contiguous issue court needs to address.

Robinson however said Akugizibwe has opportunity to defend himself and other issues will be determined by court, and they are waiting for this matter to be fixed by court.

“In our petition, our client has not prayed for by-election but to be declared as the MP-elect for Buruli Constituency,” He noted.

Efforts to get a comment from Akugizibwe Ronald Aled were futile by the time we filed this story because his mobile number was not going through for several times.

In the just concluded parliamentary elections which took place on 14th January 2021, Akugizibwe Ronald Aled (Independent) polled 8,848 votes, Bintu Jalia Lukumu (Independent) 8,316, Kabindi Steven (NRM) 7,430 and Banage Frederick Bitamale (FDC) polled the least votes with 362.
